Audi-licious A6! New-gen luxury sedan offers perfect blend of sportiness, comfort, digitisation
Audi India is out with the all-new A6. It is a vehicle that ushers in some cutting edge technology that makes it stand out from its competitors, namely the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series.
The brand’s design language is one of the best we have witnessed in the luxury car space currently and the A6 stands at the epitome of this.
It has a sharp sporty look with fine attention to detail that brings out its premium appeal. The sharp razor styled LED Matrix lights, large trapezoidal grille, taut roofline, 18-inch alloys, and short overhangs give it a striking presence that is bound to turn heads.
Overall, it offers a fine blend of elegance and sportiness, which is the very essence of this vehicle.
The new vehicle gets a spacious cabin that is finished in premium materials. There is a generous amount of leather/leatherette on board and you also get inlays done in a walnut finish with a dash of metal. The cabin gets ambient lighting choices as well.
Buttons are down to a minimum with the centre console boasting of a 10.1-inch display to access a plethora of information through the Audi multimedia interface.
The A6 also benefits from the Audi Virtual Cockpit that offers full HD resolution.
In terms of comfort, you get 4-zone air-conditioning, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, electrically adjustable steering wheel, electric trunk operation that is sensor-controlled and a panoramic glass sunroof.
Under the hood of the new car, you will find the state-of-the-art 2.0 TFSI petrol engine that is capable of churning out 245 bhp and 370 Nm of peak torque.
The engine is paired to a 7-speed S-tronic transmission that allows for seamless gear changes while keeping you in the peak powerband to enjoy an exhilarating drive experience. The A6 2.0-TFSI can go from 0-100 kmph in just 6.8 seconds.
Incidentally, the new A6 also comes with the mild-hybrid technology that allows the vehicle to coast with the engine off and helps boost efficiency as well.
Tweaked to offer a dynamic experience, the new A6 boasts of a progressive steering and an electronic chassis platform that has adjustable components that can be changed at a simple touch of a button via the Audi Drive Select System that comes with numerous driving profiles.
It is a technological powerhouse on wheels that definitely stands out from the rest. It has been priced rather well at INR 54.20 lakh.
